Regarding actions of moderators and administrators:

If you wish to discuss bans or warnings please do so via PM. To place a complaint against a moderator, send a PM to a super moderator. All Moderators are equal, any decision made by a moderator must be adhered to. If a moderator tells you something you do not like, do not go to another moderator looking for a different answer. If you are caught doing this you will be banned. The moderators work as a team and respect the decisions made by their peers and will help enforce them unless an administrator tells them differently.
If you have an issue with how the forum is run, then notify one of our administrator and we will look into the situation. We have in the past and still do appreciate any input that you offer this forum. But critical input and/or judgmental postings towards the staff will result in you getting banned.

                            • I actually work at several different jobs that vary quite a bit... construction/remodeling, landscaping/lawncare, hauling/moving services, and janitorial services.

                              Construction/remodeling jobs are falling off sharply right now, probably a sign that the economy is begining to feel the pinch from the housing bubble bursting. But the rest of them are still going strong for now.

                              They're all temp jobs, which are great for me because they give me huge amounts of time off to go on vacations to see relatives up in Oregon and Washington.

                              Notice that I never actually mention or acknowledge the debt in my letter.
